Today Fatshark and Nordic Games have announced that they will partner in the console release of the up and coming Warhammer: The End times – Vermintide. Fatshark will self-publish the digital versions of the game for consoles, and Nordic Games will publish the physical editions worldwide. So lock your doors and get prepared, as on October 4th the Skaven are coming.
Vermintide pits you and three others against vile and endless Skaven hordes, which have overrun the city of Ubersreik. You must fight the menace together as four out of five heroes, each with unique play styles, personalities and weapon arsenals. It’s survival of the fittest, either you finish them or they will finish you.
When asked about the announcement Martin Wahlund, CEO at Fatshark said “More than half a million PC gamers have already taken Vermintide to their heart, and this fall it’s time for console players to do the same. The consoles will get an extended version that includes all DLCs released for the PC version to date. We are over the moon to be working with Nordic Games on this release as their experience and expertise are incomparable.”
Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at Nordic Games followed on to say “The combination of Fatshark and Warhammer seems too good to be true. We do have quite a few fanboys in our team, who played Krater, Lead and Gold, and – of course – also played the hell out of Warhammer Vermintide on PC. To say we are stoked to work with Fatshark on Warhammer Vermintide for consoles and the physical edition for PC is the understatement of 2016 in my book”
The console version of Warhammer: The End Times – Vermintide will include the super challenging Last Stand game mode as well as its two maps, where the players fend off horde after horde of Skaven in intense and increasingly difficult battles. It will also include Sigmar’s Blessing as well as the Drachenfels DLC, which contains three additional adventure maps set outside of Ubersreik.
